Team Hally Winter Newsletter

Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised and his greatness is unsearchable. – Psalms 145:3

What an amazing evening God gave us at Bramlage Coliseum with the K-State Women’s Basketball Team this year! Over 150 Team Hally friends and family gathered to celebrate Hally’s love of basketball and our partnership with the team. It was an exciting game with K-State winning 63-54. The give away this year was clear stadium bags with Team Hally on them! Fans loved them!!! After the game Team Hally was invited to the Shamrock Zone to meet the team and staff and get autographs. Shon Yust (Hally’s daddy) and Coach Mittie gave a few words to the crowd and many opportunities opened up for sharing the Team Hally mission. We are so thankful for the continued support and encouragement of the K-State Women’s Basketball Team and staff!

Once again, the 2022 Team Hally K-State Women’s Basketball fundraiser did not disappoint! The girls played with grit and determination and came away with a WIN. We always take our family and this year our grandchildren brought friends. I heard one of the little boys say “this is so exciting, I have never seen anything like this.” Not only is it a thrill for the kids to be on a college campus, but the reason we go humbles me even much. Each year this game is to celebrate a sweet child, Hally Yust, who left us too soon to spend eternity with our Lord and Savior. But the most beautiful thing about this event is the money it raises to provide Bibles to anyone who does not have one and those who want to learn more about God’s love. Hally loved the Lord, and K-state basketball. What a winning combination! As a k-state grad myself and someone who Loves the Lord, I could not think of a better way to spend a Saturday night! – Tracy Bird


How can a K-State basketball game bring hope? It has been an annual event of Team Hally to attend a K-State Women’s Basketball game for the last 8 years.  Each year many friends, family members, schools, church members, and coworkers all join together as “Team Hally”!  We wear t-shirts signifying our group and a Bible verse, we have a kid tunnel for the team to run through and after the game we have an opportunity to meet the team.

Each year as the Team Hally video plays displaying Hally’s life I can hardly breath watching her on that big screen.  Then the mission of the ministry of giving Bibles and the hope of Jesus Christ reminds me of God working all things for our good and His glory.  This year, I wasn’t in the stands to watch the video, instead I was in a long concession line waiting for popcorn when I heard the Team Hally video music ring through the corridor.  My heart sank as I wanted to be there to once again witness the message of hope proclaimed. 

God took this moment to remind me that He is using Hally’s life and death to spread the good news of the gospel and give hope through the Word of God.  This is only possible because in a tragic, devastating circumstance, God works in the hearts of His children to give hope. Hope in suffering.  Hope that is eternal.  Hope that gives life and joy even in the midst of the most difficult events in life.  This hope is being proclaimed to a world looking for answers when life comes crashing in.  God is our hope.  The Team Hally Game gives an answer, a defense for the joy, the hope and the peace because of Christ.
– Heidi Lynch

1 Peter 3:15

“15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;” 


January-March have traditionally seen very few opportunities to give Bibles for Team Hally but 2022 is a brand new year!!!  We are thrilled to have already given out over 1,170 Bibles! Several groups that we have given Bibles to in the past requested more Bibles including: Brookside Church in Indianapolis, In His Wakes in Oregon, Hope Outdoors of Missouri, Campus Kids Ministries in Wichita, as well as Bibles given out at the Team Hally game. We love these groups that continue to give out God’s Word faithfully! In addition, we are super excited to have a new opportunity to partner right here in the Kansas City area with a program called Upward Bound basketball.  This organization seems to be a perfect fit for Team Hally with Hally’s love for both basketball as well as the Bible. At the end of their season next week over 500 elementary aged boys and girls will receive their very own Team Hally Bible!



Team Hally prays twice a month on the first and third Thursdays from 6:30-7:00 am via zoom.  We would love to have anyone interested join us!  We pray over the Bibles that have been given recently, upcoming events, the K-State Women’s basketball team, specific prayer requests and praises for Team Hally members, and open doors to give Bibles.  Please contact us if you are interested in joining.
